Export-HwCertTestCollectionToXml

Exports a test collection to an .xml file.

Syntax

Export-HwCertTestCollectionToXml
      [-InputObject] <TestCollectionRecord[]>
      -Output <String>
      [-TestPassIdentifier <String>]
      [<CommonParameters>]

Description

The Export-HwCertTestCollectionToXml cmdlet exports a test collection to an .xml file. For more information, see Windows Hardware Certification Kit downloads in the Microsoft Developer Network (MSDN) Library.

After you export a test collection, you can use the Merge-HwCertTestCollectionFromXml cmdlet to merge it with other test collections. Use the Import-HwCertTestCollectionFromXml cmdlet to import test collections that you previously exported. After you import a test collection, you can filter it by using TestCollectionRecord properties, and then use this cmdlet to export the filtered test collection.

Examples

Example 1: Filter a test collection

PS C:\> Import-HwCertTestCollectionFromXml -Input "C:\Temp\All.xml" | Where-Object { $_.ContentLevelSet.Contains("Basic") } | Export-HwCertTestCollectionToXml -Output "C:\Temp\Basic.xml"

This command imports a test collection, finds the results that belong to a specified content level, and exports a new test collection .xml file that contains only those results. The command uses the Import-HwCertTestCollectionFromXml cmdlet to import a test collection named All.xml, as a TestCollectionRecord object, and then passes that object to the Where-Object cmdlet by using the pipeline operator. The Where-Object cmdlet filters the imported object for results belong to the Basic content level. For more information, type Get-Help Where-Object. The command passes those items to the Export-HwCertTestCollectionToXml cmdlet, which exports the test collection to the file named Basic.xml.

Required Parameters
